Contrary to popular opinion, NOT ALL ARTICLES
ARE ON THE WEB. Don't despair - there are several ways to
get full-text articles:
1. First, compile a list of articles that
you did not find full-text.
Copy all pertinent information, including
the title of the article, the name of the periodical,
the date, and the volume and issue numbers.
2. Next, check to see if these articles
might be in one of the Library's full-text databases.
Go to the Library's homepage (www.lndl.org). In the "Find E-Journals" section, enter the title of a PERIODICAL (journal, magazine, or newspaper)
and click on "Search." If the periodical is available
full-text in one of the Library's databases, a list of these databases
will appear along with the dates covered in each database. Click
on the linked database name to look for the article you need.
In some cases, the database will bring you
directly to the periodical you want and will list all of the articles
available full-text. In other cases, you will have to search the
database to find the periodical and/or the article you need.
3. If you cannot locate the full text online,
check to see if the Library subscribes to the paper version of

from another library.
- If you have time (one to two weeks), you
can request the article through Interlibrary Loan.

case, article), fill out the form that appears, and submit it.
We'll let you know when your item gets here.
- If you have transportation, you may go
to another library that
